LECA Vision Statement / Intent
The curriculum at LECA reflects our philosophy that all students in our school leave as confident, knowledgeable and inquisitive individuals who will succeed and have a positive impact on modern society. We aim to achieve this vision by ensuring that each of our students are INSPIRED and all demonstrate the values of Independence, Never Giving Up, Solution-Focused, Progress-Driven, Innovative, Respectful, Enthusiastic and by championing Diversity.
The curriculum is designed with three key areas at the forefront: Intent, Implementation and Impact. Each faculty area has a thoughtfully-designed programme, with the intention that will broaden their future pathways. By studying a broad range of subjects, this will provide our students with a wide range of knowledge and skills and they will leave with the ability to apply these skills confidently and with expertise.
LECA runs a 3 year Key Stage 3 to support the breadth of curriculum on offer. With knowledge, skills, assessment and cultural capital clearly mapped, all students will be prepared for the final two years of their LECA journey. In Year 9, students make their option choices which includes a wide variety of choices. Students are encouraged to follow routes which they enjoy and will fully engage in.
Further information on options and choices are found on this ‘page’. You can find out more about our current school curriculum by contacting subject teachers on our Curriculum/Subject pages.
